High-energy. Results-driven. Focused. That’s me!

Hello! I’m a Master Trainer of Fitness Sciences (International Sports Science Association), certified as a personal trainer, sports nutritionist and life coach. I’ve been coaching full-time since 2001, featured as an expert in many esteemed publications including Shape, Fitness, Readers Digest, Health and more.

Following my 12 year career as a professional skier, I now work exclusively with overweight women of beginner fitness level. Through my inclusive weight loss retreat – Whistler Fitness Vacations – I provide total body transformations, April through September each year.

With guided adventure workouts in the beautiful wilderness trails we provide low-impact programming. Activities include guided cardio adventures and training activities, such as hiking, biking, kayaking, strength classes, boot camp, water workouts, alpine running, and one of my favorites – biking around Whistler (over 40kms of pedestrian only trail) on our super comfortable cruisers. All of it is so much fun!

Staying intentionally small allows customization of training approach.

I’m also very proud of

  1. Making the final cut of 12 trainers during my auditions for the Biggest Loser (NBC)
  2. Launching Canada’s first commercial boot camp in 2001, which went on to become the countries longest running fitness boot camp with franchise models in 3 towns.
  3. Working as a fitness model for several years, transforming my own physique from body builder, to fashion model (thin), to physique model during the off-seasons as a professional skier.
  4. Nationally syndicating my health column in over 300 Canadian newspapers
  5. Being published traditionally for my nutrition book, The Planet Friendly Diet
  6. Appearing as a fitness expert on over 20 TV appearances.

  1. Being named Canadian Trainer of the Year 3 times by the International Sports Science Association 
  2. Successfully facilitating and leading almost 400 weeks of fitness retreats 
  3. Rising from rock bottom to not only achieve financial freedom, but also be able to create a company that is able to both create dream jobs for others and give back to those less fortunate 
  4. Staying strong in business with A+ Better Business Bureau rating for 17 years.
  5. Recognition as top female boot camp instructor of 2012 (top 10 worldwide)
  6. Making the final cut of 12 trainers during my auditions for the Biggest Loser (NBC)

These are the background things that bring amazing women to enquire about working with me, but my true accomplishments are the happy smiles and final high fives.

When not running fitness retreats, I work just as hard on sales, branding, content creation and marketing.

This year, I’ll be exploring Asia for a couple of months, and hiking to Everest Base Camp with my parents. What an incredible journey that’ll be!
